I am creating a self service page that will allow users to rest their ldap passwords with the use of a “secret” . In the 389 console I am creating a custom attribute called secret in the configuration tab -> schema->attributes with syntax directory string.  This string will be 50 characters randomly created with upper and lower case numbers and letters.  After that I am creating a object class called “reset” and placing secret in that object class with the Parent of person.  When I go to my user and attempt to add the attribute from the drop down menu, secret doesn’t show.  I am just hunting and pecking here but think I am getting close… any help would be appreciated.
